Defenders 014: Dragon Knight

November 22, 2011


Xenono  gets his wish; Dragon Knight it is.  Also, I’m making a caveat for the next round of voting: no more red/orange heroes!  Sorry, Lina…

Also, I think my version of DK looks a little bit like a medieval Batman.

DK’s ult is unique (I think) in that the effects vary dramatically as it levels.  Most ults will either do more damage, or have a lower cooldown, or longer range or duration, or some combination of these.  But the ult itself usually has the same effect.  Not so with DK’s ult.  Yeah, it scales and he gets more bonus damage, and he’s always turning into a dragon, but at each of the three levels, his attacks have a different effect:

At level 1, it’s a dot. The dot also applies to structures, which is pretty rad.
At level 2, we lose the dot, but gain splash damage.
At level 3, we keep the splash and get a slow.

I wracked my brain trying to think of heroes with ults (or even abilities) that actually change with each level, instead of just generally getting stronger, but I couldn’t think of any.  Is there anyone I’m missing?

    There’s Troll Warlord, who will probably lose his Troll designation in his name.

    And about this post on convoke… “I racked my brain to think of a machine that was voiced by a man, and all I could come up with was KITT from Night Rider. ” …

    …there’s HAL, the boyfriend-in-spirit of GlaDOS, from 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Sry… couldn’t ~not~ point that out. Even if you probably have long since forgotten that post or were just making small talk.

    Legitimately forgot about HAL… I am dissapoint.

    Also, it’s embarrassing that I recycle that phrase all the time. I need to check out a thesaurus…

    Lol, try pulling your hair out.

    It retains the cranial masochism undertones that you’re probably trying to convey.

    Awesome work again, btw.

    Nice one Plz Do Invoker He Is My Favorite
    And About His Orbs i think its better to use phoenix for exort lighting chain for wex and some kind of freezing aura or ice armor for quas with increasing number(1-3)of each one you can add more effect for example quas can be like this
    1 quas=freezing aura
    2 quas=ice armor
    3 quas=enchated ice weapon
    ohh can you add weapon like staff for invoker he realy looks defenseless :D
    one more thing you can add different effects with combining of inokes different effect happens 10 deifferent effect for
    quas quas quas
    exort exort exort
    wex wex wex
    quas exort wex
    wex wex quas
    for example exort and quas make Fire Armor
    Thnx for Reading My Comment
